Balanced Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic is a profession that focuses on diagnosing and treating disorders of the muscles, joints, and nervous system. Patients of all ages ranging from infants to the elderly can be treated effectively with an individualized treatment plan. Chiropractic has classically been thought of only consisting of spinal adjustments but has evolved into including modalities such as therapeutic exercise and soft tissue techniques.  Your chiropractor may also recommend lifestyle modifications, diet and sleep changes and even ergonomic advice.

At Balanced, the difference is in our name! We believe in Chiropractic care that has a more Balanced approach, generally incorporating spinal manipulation (aka adjustments), soft tissue techniques, and exercise therapy in a comprehensive program. There are cases where manipulation will be the only modality needed, so plans are developed on an individual basis.

Chiropractic FAQ

  • What conditions do Chiropractors treat?
    Doctors of Chiropractic (DCs) care for patients of all ages, with a variety of health conditions. DCs are especially well known for their expertise in caring for patients with back pain, neck pain and headaches…particularly with their highly skilled manipulations or chiropractic adjustments. They also care for patients with a wide range of injuries and disorders of the musculoskeletal system, involving the muscles, ligaments and joints. These painful conditions often involve or impact the nervous system, which can cause referred pain and dysfunction distant to the region of injury. The benefits of chiropractic care extend to general health issues, as well, since our body structure affects our overall function. DCs also counsel patients on diet, nutrition, exercise, healthy habits, and occupational and lifestyle modification.
  • How do I select a doctor of chiropractic?
    One of the best ways to select a doctor of chiropractic (DC) is by getting a referral from a friend, family member, colleague, or another health care provider. You can also locate a DC near you by using the American Chiropractic Association’s Find a Doctor search tool, or the United Virginia Chiropractic Association's Find a Doctor tool. What to look for? Look for a chiropractor that doesn't recommend imaging for every patient, a chiropractor that includes an active exercise component to your treatment and doesn't recommend long term treatment plans.
